THE SLAVE SYSTEM IN AFRICA By Anago James Akeem Osho



It should be clearly noted that slavery and the slave trade as an institution was quite different in Africa from how it was practiced by Europeans in the Americas. Slavery was not new to continental Africa. Before the Portuguese ever set their foot on the shores of West Africa, there were slave markets in the hinterland. Slavery as a system was as old as the human race. It was once upon a time practiced everywhere on earth. It was recorded in the scriptures of the Christians that the Israelite were slaves in Egypt. In ancient Rome, the Gladiators were used as sport and entertainment. The Gladiators were European slaves who were captured during wars but some sold themselves to pay certain debts. The Gladiators comprises of Europeans and very few Blacks.

            This statement describes the importance of a Tourist Guide in the marketing and promotion of a Tourist Destination. It should be noted that the relationship between a Tourist Guide, Tourist and Tourist Destination should be intimate, educational, emotional and spiritual. The intimacy is the relationship while the spiritual is the passion. The information in this work is basically gathered through my years of experience as a professional Tourist Guide.

                                                                 INTRODUCTION

The descendants of both African and European slave traders, slave plantation owners and the people of the world should agree in spirit and truth to appease the spirit of millions of slaves who died during the trans Atlantic slave trade and let us forgive each other in truth. This is the Ideal of the International Slavery Atonement Crusade.
We should not be hypocritical about this. We should not be hypocritical about the level of racism in our communities and countries. International Slavery Atonement Crusade means that we should acknowledge the persistence of hate and racism and decide to deal with it physically and spiritually.

THE BLACK YOUTH by Anago James Akeem Osho



The ball is in the court of African Youths and Africans/Blacks in Diaspora. The time is overdue for the youths to put their destinies into their hands. To put ones destiny into ones hand does not mean you should cause chaos on the streets or go and rob a liquor store or a bank and get killed by security agents. To put your destiny into your hands means to reorganize your life and become responsible. You should become a Visionaire. You should repackage your life and work toward a great and positive dream you have set for yourself. Dream big and have a positive mind set.

THE RE-CONNECTION OF AFRICA AND AFRICANS (BLACKS) IN DIASPORA by Anago James Akeem Osho

The re-connection of Africa and Africans in Diaspora is the will of the conscious in this generation and hopefully the generation yet unborn. Look around the Americas and places in Africa, you'll realize that the connection is growing and the bond is becoming adhering. I perceive this to be the desire of our Ancestors and the creator of the circle of life.
